midnight madness drifting 07/03/09 by kOOpA

kinda weird, but it’s been a while since we’ve hit a local event. the evening started out pretty well with everyone excited about getting a new area to drive in for our… somewhat monthly “midnight madness” event at gateway international raceway. i think everybody got a couple good runs but by the middle of the night the course got shut down a few times for reorganization and what not. between all the waiting between runs, and a lot of people damaging their cars on bumps, quite a few people called it an early night.

anyways, here’s the pictures.

jarrod’s car lookin’ straight mean!

one of domi’s corolla gt-s hatch backs…. i know.. poor guy, right?

my corolla freshly painted.. as sad as that appears, i seriously rolled on spray paint in the parking lot because it was chipping all over the place. that’s hood style for ya.

dangerdan uh…. i dunno, the dude’s kinda strong.. and crazy.. soooo we pretty much don’t make fun of him.. as a result, he does really weird shit and gets away with it.

this is our friend chris crane’s d-truck. before you go hating on the project, the dude actually bought a wrecked s14 and made it into this. no pretty nissans were hurt in the making of this drift car =p

shawnshawn wrote this on my miata’s tail light i don’t even know how long ago, and somehow it’s still there.

here’s jarrod hittin’ the new track with his big ass wheels in the back, damn!

me throwin’ the miata around.. bout time that thing’s lookin’ low.

dan, i think at the same spot, i guess we were looking good here? =p

whoooooooooa this is awesome!

domi even overcame his usually-overwhelming paranoia and drove his corolla!

and our boy mike absolutely murdering tires.. bumper all fallin’ off, i love it! also, he finally got his hood stripe, kind of a team tradition ever since dangerdan did it a while back.

overall a decent event, sorry to all the people whose cars were messed up on the crappy sections of the course x.x but apparently we’ll be in yet another new spot next time, so it should be better!

all these photos, if you haven’t been able to tell already, taken by rhino @ step into the dark photography, official photographer and manscot of control freaks ^^

had a great time this past saturday at drift indy round 2 in converse, indiana! the dudes running the event and everyone in general were really cool and laid back. i had some trouble trying to do the really high-speed sweeper in my miata, but jarrod and dan did awesome, qualifying 4th and 3rd respectively, and dan got to tandem, and ended up getting 1st place! what!?

here’s the pics!

dan was just layin’ it down all day




jarrod, with his new hood vinyl, sexxxxxyyyyyyy!




and myself, on the new suspension and… stickers, lol.




our buddy charlie made it out too! the event runners gave him props for having his kids out there and keeping them under control, haha.



there was quite a bit of downtime, so i took a moment to just chill out and eat some ranch corn nuts.

the cars.. lookin’ pretty..

thanks to sara for coming out with us again! you’re the man!.. wait.. you know what i mean.

pretty much radness

i love how this video combines rad footage, good editing, good music, and the reality that shit really does go wrong on the streets.

be careful out there!

domi’s brother took some pictures while at the gateway event a couple weeks back, and i’m just getting around to posting them up. i know, booooo me.

here’s dan and tony doing tandem

kyle and omar in tandem at stupid crazy speeds

mr. conrad, lookin’ kinda sinister here without the front bumper

mikey, layin down some smoke. i think we gotta tell andrey about the zoom button

it was really hard to keep parking the miata in these cool positions all day without people yelling at me… nahhh i was actually driftin’

don’t recall this dude’s name, but he was really nice, and had a cool car, and drove it well, and had a cool dog.. what’s not to like?

this is johnnychon’s fb, soon to be lowered with fender flares, can’t wait for that!

erin’s car was parked all day, i think she’s afraid to scratch her pink roll cage.

dewey, owner of, one of the most laid back dudes ever, chillin’ with his lady.

afterwords we headed to sonic, where i got to very temporarily suppress my urge to inhale strawberry banana smoothie goodness

this week we’re heading to atlanta for formula d round 2 and southeast drift triple threat round 1! stay tuned for that!
